Stetson’s story is one of redemption not perfection. Raised in a Christian home, saved at a young age, and spent a good deal of time “playing” church. Worked as an engineer, called by God to preach, now lives in Italy as a missionary. Stands in awe of God’s majesty, humbled by God’s grace, in need of God’s power. Heart’s desire is to live a transformed life and tell others about Jesus Christ and the power of His resurrection. In love with Sandy. Proud daddy of Isaiah and Pearl. Likes most things Italian, especially Rome, Vespas, and cappuccino.
Sandy jokes that she is the anti-missionary wife: she didn’t attend Bible college, she doesn’t play piano nor does she sing. Sandy wasn’t raised in a Christian home but was rather brought up under the false teaching of the Church of Christ that water baptism is necessary for salvation.
Having left “religion” because of the circular reasoning and hypocrisy of those in leadership she began to search if any religion had the truth around the time she finished her undergraduate degree. God heard her cry for Truth and through His providence she heard the gospel and received Jesus Christ as Saviour on her birthday. Personally experiencing that not everything labeled “Christian” is Christian indeed, Sandy is passionate about sharing the good news that salvation is in Jesus Christ alone and this faith should be evidenced in the life of the believer. Although once strongly career minded she left college one semester shy of her master’s in clinical psychology, for what she believes is her primary call, to be a wife and mother.
Sandy is adventurous, loves the arts and fashion, thinks Venice is the most beautiful city in the most amazing country in the world, and invests all of her being into her family.
ISAIAH AND PEARL
To protect the children from those who might scour the internet for victims, Stetson and Sandy have decided not to include information about the kids’ personalities and likes. Isaiah and Pearl are amazing children and complete joys to their parents.
